Electrospun Fiber-Based Drug Delivery System

Vomiting and nausea are common side effects of chemotherapy and surgery. Current treatments such as tablets releases its payload within minutes leading to more undesired side effects such as headache and dizziness.

Our project goal are to design a biodegradable drug delivery system which will:

  • Avoid typical burst release of drug that causes adverse side effects
  • Achieve sustained release of drug to increase patient compliance

Our design will take advantage of the electrospinner housed in LTU to produce drug-embedded fibrous patches to achieve our goals.
